Northern Bias in Poetry ?


Until I moved to North Carolina, it never struck me as odd that people talk about “April showers bring May flowers.” That nice little bit of rhyming doesn’t make sense down here in the south. Which made me think: but what would this phrase look like in different parts of the country? Here are my best guesses.

In North Carolina: February showers bring March flowers

In Seattle: October, November, December January, February, March, April showers bring… Seasonal Affective Disorder?

In Los Angeles: Showers?

In Antarctica: Flowers?

I’d love to see some of your own suggestions.
